This is my second article and often times, i have been facing this real life question of; is schooling the only education we have?. When you hear people say if you are not educated, you are not going anywhere in life, in fact you may not be successful in life, to be factual that is not 100% truth, but practically everybody means "Schooling".
In my own opinion, schooling is there to brush up our knowledge, get acquainted to what's going in the real life, and makes it easier for us to get along where ever we may find ourselves in life. But unfortunately, the world has made it so important that they feel if you do not go to school, success is far away from you. Fine, i can understand without school we may not learn about science, formal way of doing and accomplishing things, i can't argue with anyone that western education has thought us a lot down to knowing how to relate formally with people where ever we may find ourselves.
From my daily thinking and research i have to convince myself that not only school is education, because what is the essence of going to school without having; social education, moral education and religious education. You might go to school all your life and still be useless and rude towards another being, Because schooling didn't teach that, but other forms of education does.
Moral education as part of Education; What is the purpose of going to school and still lacks moral education?, that's of course useless, that would make relation with other group of people or superior uncalled for. Meanwhile, moral education means helping children and young people to gain set of beliefs and values regarding what is right and wrong, and these beliefs would guide them on what is right and wrong and how to best relate with other people, society and environment.
Social Education as part of Education; Going to school is part of western education which we have imbibed as the highest form of education and that is really affecting us today, school teaches courses and subjects while education teaches a way of life. Social education has something to deal with the way we flow and interact with people, surrounding and environment. In addition, this is a people to people, organization to organization kind of relationship, and without interaction, there is nothing like socialization, therefore we have to bring up our wards and infuse the social education into them, so they would know how to interact with the world.
Religious Education as part of Education; This is one of the biggest part among the forms of education, this involves bringing up your family, teaching people how to live a good and Godly life. This type of education makes the one who is taught to have the fear of The Almighty, and refrain from doing bad, and loves everyone we come across. This is an education concerned with religion, which aligns with induction and faith, which is often provided by a religious group, parents and and clerics.
In conclusion, I have come to realize education revolves around many angles and doesn't mean going to school only.
